Free Washington Wizards vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction:
This is a must-win match for the Wizards who are inching closer to being eliminated from contention for a play-in seed. The Wiz have alternated wins and losses through their last four while the Knicks are on a three-game win streak.
Although Washington has been scrappy, without their core three it’s unlikely they’ll have enough offense to match the Knicks. The question is whether New York will cover the 9.5 spread without Randle in the lineup.
